Agenda: Planning for the 2013 Novi Spring Home & Garden Show which runs from  Fri, April 5th -  Sun Apr 7th 2013.


Rosalie Lamb and  Beth Monicatti-Blank our Home Show liaisons will be in attendance to determine the new  set up.

We would appreciate feedback from all who participated last year and those who want to participate this year. We are changing the booth configuration so that every artist is on an aisle.  


If you want to participate but cannot attend the meeting, please email linda@lindashears.com ASAP because space is limited.

This is a juried show and there is a $25 per artist entrance fee which is payable to NWCF-I/ACT Fund. The fee is charged to artists whose work is accepted.  If you are new to I/ACT and we have not seen your work before, please bring a portfolio or provide us with your website.  

If possible, please also join our Yahoo discussion group for event updates (link at the left).

Please RSVP to linda@lindashears.com if you can attend.

The meetings are free and open to anyone interested in arts and culture in Troy. New attendees are encouraged to bring artwork samples. 


January Exhibit:  Bill Cowger's Photo Safaris 
"African Adventures in Troy"

Troy Photographer Bill Cowger of ThePhotoSafari.com has a month long exhibit at the the Troy Public Library. 
Popular Photography Magazine (largest circulation in the industry) featured Bill's Photo Safaris & Workshops in their Nov 2011 issue.          

Bill  has also worked to raise enough money over the years to refurbish and support an entire elementary school for an orphanage in the town of the Usa River, Tanzania.  The children have been provided classrooms, sanitation stations and other improvements to aid in their education environment.   


During the month-long exhibit, donations will be gratefully accepted to assist the children at the Seeway Orphanage in the town of the Usa River, Tanzania via the Troy Rotary Foundation.
